Mission XP - 31 August 2015

Hey everyone,

Super fast week. I honestly don't remember most of what happened. We taught all our investigators this week. They are going to be on date soon which is awesome! Transfers are in a week and I'm definitely getting a new companion because this one is going home. I don't, however, know if I'm staying in Founders Park I've been here for 7 & 1/2 months sooo.....
Anyway we should be picking up a new investigator in a couple days if all goes as planned.
We've been meeting with an awesome non-member family but they aren't all entirely interested in the gospel yet but they are coming along. 

I love you all very much. Have an awesome week!

Mission XP - 23 August 2015

Hey mom! That was exciting to hear about your experience in Nauvoo.

Everything is awesome! So the best thing that happened last week actually happened yesterday and it was that a family, who are non-members (not members of the church), called us over to visit with them. 
We shared a story lesson with them and played piano for them. They loved it. I love them
so much. I've been trying to show them that we are normal people and lovingly befriend and teach them and now it's finally happening which is soo nice.
I learned in studies mostly that more things relate to the atonement that I before realized. Because I'm not marking where it just says or mentions atonement, I'm marking anything that has to do with any part of the atonement. It has very much enlightened me.
Sunday we got three very strong referals we are going to contact this week.

I'll have been in founders park for 7 1/2 months and I think/ hope I
stay just because so much work is going on. So many solid people I
don't want to leave.

I love you all very much

Missin XP - 17 August 2015

Hey it's been great! I'll write more next week sorry, busy today and my p-day is getting cut short?
This week was great. We got to teach almost all of our investigators we've been working with and we are going to be meeting with him tommorow! We also are meeting with a nonmember family Sunday which I am very much looking forward to! Exchanges were pretty good with elder Montgomery. I need to practice more or at least be more bold in oyming but I did lead, for the most part, and mostly teach both lessons we had and they were both in his area. I found I'm getting a lot better with teaching so I'm happy because that's what I've been working on in personal study too this week is in preach my gospel I've been going over the chapters that will help me with that. Anyway, last week was great and I'm looking forward to this week.

Mission XP - 10 August 2015

This week was fantastic. We picked up another investigator and had two lessons with her and we had a lesson with our two other investigators. The third one is really busy because he is about to go home to California so we haven't had a lesson with him for a week but we are trying to schedule one. We were able to do service a couple times this week...hoorah. I fricken love doing service for people its when I feel most that I'm literally doing everything at a certain time for someone else. Absolutely nothing is for me so I cherish those moments the few times we get them.
Studies have been helpful for me. Mainly I've been studying member trust because that's what's been helping us the most. And also I've been reading in the Book of Mormon. 
We spent a couple hours at a potential investigators house last night and the Sunday before that because we are just trying to be friends with hem and they are awesome. Last Sunday the mom played piano then I did then I did a couple card tricks and then we talked about poligamy so that was fun. We walked around a lot trying to contact auxiliary leaders but everyone is gone until like 6 sooo it's boring in the mornings. But our investigators are awesome especially Andrew. 

Anyway, I miss you all loads. Have a great week. Love you

Mission XP - 3 August 2015

Wow! This week has been awesome. More so than usual. Miracles and awesome stuff happening all around. So transfers happened. I was praying that I would stay because all the work that has been happening recently however - I was all packed up and ready to go just in case I was transferred. I stayed. Elder Branen is my new companion and what an awesome one he is. I really think the transfer was perfect because we had a lesson with our investigator and it was one of the most spiritual and personal lessons I've ever been in. I love him to death. He just hadn't been progressing much at all. But during our lesson on Wednesday the spirit just overwhelmed me to the point of which I was balling my eyes out uncontrollably and I pretty much just said in short version that he has had amazing experiences, he is an amazing guy, he has felt the spirit, and he wants the church to be true, and I said that I just didn't understand why he hadn't prayed yet about baptism and then elder Branen testified to that and shared an incredible experience that was perfect to our investigator's needs and it was perfect and our investigator expressed his concern..his actual concern and we resolved it and he said that he wanted to read more for himself and he felt the spirit and I know he's so close and I'm so excited right now. 
We also picked up a new investigator on Saturday and we went to church Sunday with him. He is shy but wants to be baptized and I feel like we will be able to get him to be more comfortable with us next meeting. We also set up an appointment for this week with a solid potential investigator. We also got, what I feel is, a solid referal so we are going by them this week.
In coorelation last week I felt really prompted to pray and to find focus families for all 11 wards - for us to focus on so that we will be able to: 1. Gain the trust of EVERY Ward mission leader and 2. Be able to equaly focus on every Ward and I can already see the growth and improvement. 
So amazing week. An amazing companion. An amazing area
